Great Metal Detecting Simulator Made by Up and Coming Developer

Ben Wiest is a 16 year old aspiring game developer from Wisconsin. Ben sure did good with this game, and I would like to see more from him. The game I am talking about is a game made by Ben called "Detector Island: A Metal Detecting Game".

(Here is a handy link): 



As I played this game there were a few aspects that I were most impressed with. For one, being able to purchase metal detector upgrades and skins with points was a great idea! Second, and this may just be a personal thing, exploring the terrain of the map was so enjoyable, especially climbing.

I got to speak with Ben, and learned some about him and his motivation for the game, this is what I learned:

"I started working on Detector Island after coming up with the idea to make a metal detecting game, with it being snowy outside and not being able to go detecting in real life, as it’s a fun pass time of mine.

Another Great Game

Love the game. I really appreciate the presentation of the game as well. This is exactly the type of game I hoped for out of this game jam. Even though the developer says this is badly put together, I have seen much worse; and this game is pretty fun as well.

Well, it may just be because it is early in development but the game is a little hard to play. I enjoy the overall concept of the game and hope it is expanded upon more. Sonic is so famous who has ever given Soni the thought she deserves?

My friend's new game.

Before I begin today's post, I have to excuse my absence over the past few weeks. It goes without saying I am extremely busy, but that serves as no excuse. On the plus side my blog is starting a brand new game jam (you can check it out on the game jams page). I am pretty stoked about this new game jam because we have reached double digits in the amount of people joined, and that is a beginning milestone (because lately I have been struggling with my game jams).

So, onto the post!

I hope we all remember my good friend Ben, the creator of Detector Island. Well, he is creating a new game and someone has the dev logs to show you. Remember that this kid is only 17 and the game looks amazing even now.

I think that while I am at it I will post Detector Island as well.
